Our holiday walking grades

Leisurely

Grade 3

Easy countryside walking with plenty of breaks, normally taking up the whole day.

Most of these holidays have an element of sightseeing.

You are unlikely to walk more than 6 miles and the cumulative ascents and descents will be gradual and range from minimal to 300m.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • World-class bird activity at the Asa Wright Nature Centre.
  • Enjoy bird and wildlife viewing at a relaxed walking pace.
  • Sunset cruise on the Caroni swamp to view the Scarlet Ibis.
  • Explore Dunstan Cave to see the nocturnal Guacharo.
  • Specialist birding guides included to maximise our experience

Trinidad’s dynamic and vibrant beat nestles comfortably alongside the more serene Tobago, which offers the chance to take a step back and relax. The twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago offers visitors the best of two worlds. The proximity of the islands to South America has resulted in unusually diverse fauna, particularly the islands’ bird life, with no other area in the West Indies, and few areas of comparable size in tropical America, matching the islands’ spectacular species diversity. Explore on foot and observe along forest tracks and coastal trails – this leisurely holiday has nature at its heart.

On Trinidad we stay firstly in the grounds of the historic Mount St Benedict Monastery. We follow trails up to Mount Tabor, walk in the Arena Forest and visit the Atlantic coast to see Yellow-headed Caracara, Yellow-rumped Cacique and Moriche Oriole in the Nariva swamp and wetlands. We’ll take a boat trip on the Caroni Swamp to view Scarlet Ibis and Egrets as they fly in to roost in their hundreds.

We spend three nights in Asa Wright Nature Centre, a leader in conservation, education and research. With expert guides, we’ll discover local trails and see many of the island’s specialty species of birds and wildlife including huge Tegu Lizards, Channel-billed Toucans, three species of Trogons, Golden-headed Manikins, White-bearded Manikins and Bearded Bellbirds. A walk to the Dunstan Cave to see the mysterious nocturnal Guacharos (Oilbirds) is not to be missed! We can swim in the natural pools and from the centre’s “Terrace” we will enjoy the early morning bird activity at close quarters.

Moving on we take a short flight to Tobago, then onto Speyside on the north eastern corner of this beautiful island. We’ll walk on unspoilt mountain, rain forest and coastal trails, hopefully to see nesting seabirds such as Red-billed Tropicbirds and Brown Boobies. We’ll also discover a spectacular hummingbird gallery in Speyside that gives amazing opportunities for photographing hummingbirds.

Accommodation

Accommodation information

Below is the accommodation featured on this holiday across all departure dates. Please refer to the Itinerary for more detail about each night's accommodation for each departure date.

Pax Guest House

The Pax Guest House is located in the lush Northern Range of Trinidad, set in acres of forested area surrounding the Mount St. Benedict Monastery. Established in the early 1900s, it is one of the oldest properties on the island and was originally used to accommodate visitors to the monastery.

Due to the previous use of the building, the Guest House offers simple, yet adequate, accommodation in an excellent location with all bedrooms simply decorated in colonial style, with ceiling fans and wash basins. Some rooms are en suite, while others use shared facilities (separate male and female bathrooms).

The Guest House has a living room and dining. From the verandas you can watch the early morning sun rise above the Caroni Plains some 800 meters below, and are ideal for both evening and morning bird watching. Sir David Attenborough and the Dalai Lama are amongst guests who have stayed at the Guest House.

Asa Wright Nature Centre and Lodge

This Hotel and Lodge is the jewel in Trinidad’s crown. Also located in the Northern Range, set amongst almost 1500 acres of rain forest, it is a world leader in conservation through education and research and has long been a leader in ecotourism.

The covered veranda that surrounds the lodge is an ideal location for viewing numerous species of birds and wildlife. All rooms at the Lodge are en suite and all meals, including morning and afternoon tea, during our stay are included. There are natural pools located within the grounds for a relaxing afternoon dip. Being built into the hillside, many of the bungalows have steps up or down to reach them. Free internet is available.

Blue Waters Inn

The Blue Waters Inn is a beachfront property delightfully tucked away in its own secluded bay, with a forest reserve that acts as its backdrop. The beautiful outdoor pool dramatically sits just metres away from the waters edge.

All rooms face the ocean and have ceiling fans, climate control, coffee-making machine, a balcony or porch and are en suite. The hotel has a restaurant and bar. You can also hire snorkel equipment from the hotel’s dive centre.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

Birding and walking is a great combination which is why our holiday is a Grade 3 with the emphasis firmly on bird watching. Easy walking on largely level ground will be a feature of a number of the days, whilst spending time to take in the wildlife along the routes used. Walks will therefore, generally be short, around four miles as we experience a wide range of habitats. It is common however to come to across short sections of steep terrain, remember you are in the rain forest! You are unlikely to walk more than 4 miles and the cumulative ascents and descents will be gradual and range from minimal to up to about 300m.

Walks & Excursions

Much of the walking is done on well prepared, well-marked trails and paths, however there can be uneven stretches and natural steps, which are rough underfoot.  The walks will be taken at leisurely pace and range from 2.5 - 4 miles, but this can be spread over a full day allowing for stops and time to look at the wildlife and its behaviour and allowing for photographic stops. Some of our days are spent entirely out in the field.  There will be some early starts, as the wildlife and birds can best be seen during the coolest part of the day. The hour prior to sunset is again a very good time for viewing, which we will be able to enjoy from our accommodations’ verandas.

Our time on Trinidad will be spent in a flurry of activity with some early starts, full days in the field and evening viewing from verandas or from a boat when we are at Caroni Swamp. Tobago is a little more laid back and as our hotel sits directly on the beach, is a perfect spot for relaxing.

Local Transport Costs

All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.

Optional Excursions

A range of local excursions and activities may be available to book at your destination through a local operator. We have no involvement in such activities or excursions which are not run, supervised or controlled in any way by us. Your contract will be with the local activity supplier and we accept no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

When budgeting for your holiday, you will need to consider drinks, any meals not included in the holiday price, non-included entrance fees, optional excursions you may choose to participate in locally and any souvenirs or additional services such as laundry. A general guideline for lunches and drinks is £10-£20 per person per day.

Currency in Trinidad

The currency in Trinidad & Tobago is the Dollar (TT$). US Dollars are also accepted in many locations.

Holiday Personal Expenditure

There are very little costs to be paid locally in connection with our outlined programme of walks and sightseeing, as the majority of costs are included in the holiday price.   You may wish to allow US$10 for a donation to Newton’s Bird Garden and the optional glass bottomed boat trip to Little Tobago (US$30 at time of writing and includes snorkel equipment), and snorkel hire at the Blue Waters Inn. Any optional excursions taken will be at additional cost.

Tipping

Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high.  In order to simplify tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff & to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by us together with, if you wish, a contribution from you, which he/she will collect during the holiday.

Tour Leaders & Local Guides

Passports and Visas

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport. Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country.

Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements.

General travel and destination advice for UK nationals is available from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk/travel and at www.gov.uk/travelaware.

Passport Information for Trinidad

A passport is required for travel to Trinidad & Tobago, which should be valid for a minimum of six months after your intended return to the UK.  British passport holders do not require a visa to enter. You will be required to complete an immigration form on arrival, which asks you to list where you will be staying. You will find the information you need under “Accommodation and Meals” in this document.

Meals

All breakfasts and buffet dinners are included in the holiday cost. Lunches are included during our stay at the Asa Wright Nature Centre but are not included during the rest of the holiday. For the majority of the days we suggest a packed lunch, which can be obtained from the hotels, or a stop may be made at a local restaurant, depending on the day’s itinerary.

Footwear & Kit List

Footwear

Good quality waterproof walking shoes or trail shoes with a thick, moulded sole with a good tread and a low heel are likely to be all that is required for these holidays. If you are a frequent walker and are comfortable in good quality hiking sandals, these may be adequate for some walks. You can wear lightweight walking boots if you prefer.

Footwear As Hand Luggage

We recommend that you either wear your walking boots or shoes or pack them and some waterproofs in your hand luggage as in the unlikely event that your hold luggage is delayed, you will still be able to participate in the holiday programme.

General Kit List

Outdoor activities are always safer and more enjoyable if you are prepared.

If you have not travelled with us before the following list might be of use:

  • Waterproof jacket (Goretex or similar) and trousers
  • Fleece or jumper
  • Sun hat, sunglasses, lip salve and sun screen
  • Swimwear (if appropriate)
  • Day sack (this should be able to carry all you would need for the days activity)
  • Water bottle - at least 1 litre capacity
  • Basic first aid kit
  • Reusable Lunchbox
  • Walking poles (should you find them useful)

This list is not exhaustive and every walker is different and may have their own preference.

Caribbean Climate

The Caribbean has a typical tropical climate with high temperatures and plenty of rainfall, which is why the islands are so lush. There is little seasonal variation in temperature due to the islands location near the equator, but the seasons are determined by the amount of rainfall, and consist of rainy (generally June to October/November), and dry (generally December to May) seasons. 

During the wet season, rainfall is usually in the form of short, but heavy, bursts with a high increase in humidity, while the dry season’s rain showers are generally lighter and the humidity is not so intense. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 30°C all year round. 

With high temperatures and humidity, you will want to dress for comfort. Light cotton t-shirts, shorts, skirts and trousers are ideal for the day, especially ones that are quick drying so you can rinse them out to use again (saves on packing too!). For the evenings, smart casual attire is fine. 

The Caribbean can occasionally experience short, sharp, heavy periods of rain that can occur without warning, leaving trails wet and streams higher than normal. When this happens, for some trails we may need to change the plan at short notice or, for more straightforward trails, it has been very useful in the past to don water/aqua-shoes for short sections where lying water is higher than boot level.  These shoes can also be useful in and around rocky areas like waterfalls, for people with sensitive feet when getting in and out of water. It is also useful to carry a small, |light towel|. You may feel that waterproof trousers are not needed.

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

You must be adequately insured to join our holidays. We do not insist that you insure with us but we require that you are adequately insured for the nature of your holiday. You will be unable to participate in our local walking and other activity programmes without being able to demonstrate that you have valid travel insurance.

Please ensure that as a minimum your travel insurance policy covers you for travel to your holiday destinations (country and geographical region) and for medical expenses, mountain rescue (including helicopter rescue) and emergency repatriation to your home country in the event of illness or injury. Your policy should also provide adequate cover for the activities, included and optional, you are likely to participate in during your holiday.

See our brochure or website for further advice regarding holiday insurance.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at www.gov.uk/travelaware. Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
